Happy Mother's Day!

This has been an up and down week...mentally and physically! Decided to do some exercising...and my body said, "oh, no, she didn't!" with a z-snap of it's fingers and decided to teach me a lesson by making every muscle and joint hurt like hell! Okay...so I don't do anything slow...I decided to be like Denise Austin and go for the burn! And, I thought I was doing pretty good until the next day when I looked more like Granny Clampett walking around! So for a couple of days...breathing hurt! LOL!

Mentally...more of the same...one day up, the next day down! Or sometimes minute by minute! Same old, same old! Ugh!

But, I was cleaning out a closet and came across the kids baby's books and such. And, with Mother's Day approaching, it just got me thinking about the day my kid's were born, especially my daughter since she was my first. Who knew that amount of love could instantly overflow from my heart? And, all those doubts about being a mother could vanish so quickly and I just knew that, although I might make mistakes, I would do everything in my power to protect this little life in my arms. And, when my son came along, it amazed me that a heart could hold that much love all over again! And, even though just seconds old, the love was equal to the love I had for his sister. That love did not have to grow...it just WAS. Like it had always been there.

My kids are adults now and don't need me much for protection and their lives are too busy for me to be hugging at them like when they were little but every once in awhile, sometimes just for a brief moment, that flood of love comes over me the same as the day they were born. Sometimes when they have been disappointed or hurt, that urge to protect and make it better is almost overwhelming. And, then there are those times when they have accomplished a goal and I find myself bursting with pride. But mostly, when I see them being kind and caring and I think, I did okay...despite the mistakes along the way, I must have done some things right! Yes, I miss those days when I could hold them on my lap, when they "needed" me, when they thought I was the smartest person in the world because I could make a "boo-boo" better but then I look at the adults they have become and I am proud! Proud of the people they have become...loving, kind, thoughtful, honest...everything I could and did hope for for them. THEY are my presents on Mother's Day...these two wonderful people who call me MOM!


I have had this little kit done for some time and had forgotten about it. It was inspired by my daughter's 'coming home' outfit...I hope you enjoy!

I don't think I could have expressed the feeling of being a mom to older children better myself. Its just those little things isn't it Wanda. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and the beautiful kit. Happy Mothers Day.

Jannigirl, you sure know how to sum things up! I'll drink to that! It's all because of you that they are who they are. You must be so proud! Don't be afraid to love on them like when they were babies, even though they wince and say 'oh mom!', deep down, they soak it in! *grin* I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day and thank you so much for the wonderful kit!
